Given that Timo Werner has also failed to set the world alight following his big-money move from RB Leipzig last year, there’s every chance that Broja could play his way into Tuchel’s first-team plans for next season over the coming months.
The Blues have already been stung by offloading a promising youngster to Southampton on the cheap this year.
Just six months after Tino Livramento was given the green light to seal a £5m switch to Southampton, it’s been reported that the Blues would have to pay upward of £40m to activate the buy-back clause that they insisted on as part of the deal.
It’s hard to see them agreeing to a similar type of deal with Broja given their current goalscoring woes.
But there is every chance that Broja could be back at Stamford Bridge in a Blues shirt next year given that he’s currently outperforming Chelsea’s expensive attacking misfits.
